My First White Christmas

Happy New Year! We are back from our Christmas escape to Santa Fe and we had a wonderful white Christmas...my first! It was truly beautiful! Cold, very cold, but beautiful. We had such a great time and lots to see. From old missions and pueblos, to our trip home taking the historical Route 66 from Santa Fe all the way through Arizona to the border of California. Yes, that is us "standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona!"

I even found mistletoe growing on a tree on the way there and made Beni stop so I could go and climb the tree and pull it down. I spotted it as we were driving down the snowing mountain hiway and he's such a great guy to find a place to turn around and drive back 2 miles... Not that we needed the Mistletoe in our room! But hey, real, fresh Mistletoe, how often do you get that? And isn't Mistletoe such a nice name for a parasite you kiss under?

It's good to be home and hope everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
For us it was the first New Years we hadn't worked in decades...Pyrotechnicians in Vegas sorta are busy that time of year!

that sounds divine Brenda!

Glad to hear you had such a stunning New Year after all the medical issues back in 2008.

I'm currently stuck in a 10°F Antwerp, trying to keep this place warm while facing icy sidewalks, never seen the passed decade.

Global warming? Not in Belgium ;-)

Sounds like a fabulous trip!

I'll have Take It Easy stuck in my head the rest of the day!

I always wanted to visit New Mexico. Yes, like you, I'm a massive Georgia O'Keefe fan and for a time I collected Southwestern art. Hubs considered taking a job there long ago...

Glad you are back online and loving life!
